Sarri picks two key Frankfurt players to watch in Thursday night tie
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has singled out Luka Jovic and Ante Rebic as the dangermen for Eintracht Frankfurt ahead of their Europa League second leg clash at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night.
Jovic, in particular, has been in sensational form for Frankfurt this season and was on target for his side a week ago in the first leg, taking his tally to nine for the season, one behind Chelsea's Olivier Giroud, who has scored 10.
"In a semi-final, you always have to play against a strong team with strong players so it’s difficult to say we are favourites. They have two good strikers in [Luka] Jovic and [Ante] Rebic so we have to be careful," he said.
"Now we have to play in another competition so our next target is to reach the final and then to win the final because our feeling is we deserve a trophy. It’s an important match and we have to play to win," he added.
The Blues boast of a crucial away goal in Germany last week and will qualify with at least a scoreless draw.
